Running the Misbehavior Out
A few years back, two players were fighting to settle a disagreement. Coach Larry Campbell didn't put up with such lack of discipline, so he had them start running - in full pads and helmet. After several laps he allowed them to remove their helmets on the hot day. After a while longer, he let them drop their pads. After about an hour total, he stopped them and asked if they would be fighting any more. "No sir" came the quick, polite answer from each of them. Problem solved, and they got in some exercise as well.
Before they were the Red Devils, the Lincolnton football team was known as the Bearcats.
